Panavision® provides a wide range of non-Panavision optics such as Cooke S4/i, Zeiss Master and Ultra Primes, and Angenieux Optimo zooms. Our inventory also features some earlier generation optics such as Baltars and Kowas.
Cooke S4/i Lenses
The Cooke S4/i focal lengths range from 12mm to 300mm, all with an aperture of T2 and close focus distances ranging from 9 inches to 7 feet. Color matched and compatible with most lenses in the Cooke line, the S4 offers excellent optical and mechanical performance with minimal veiling glare, ghosting, and reflections.
Specifically designed for all PL mounted professional motion picture film and electronic cameras, the /i Technology provides the easy reference to information about lens settings (e.g., focus distance, aperture, depth-of-field, hyperfocal distance, etc.).
Zeiss Master Primes and Ultra Primes
Zeiss Master Primes offer focal lengths ranging from 14mm to 150mm, all with an aperture of T1.3 and close focus distances ranging from 14 inches to 4 feet 11 inches. These lenses combine high contrast and resolution, even field illumination, negligible veiling glare, and virtually no breathing.
The focal lengths of the Zeiss Ultra Primes range from 10mm to 180mm, with apertures ranging from T1.7 to T2.3 and close focus distances ranging from 9 inches to 8 ½ feet. These lenses combine high contrast and resolution and even field illumination.
Angenieux Optimo Zoom
An excellent companion to Panavision’s line of zoom lenses, the Optimo 15mm-40mm zoom has an aperture of T2.6 and a close focus distance of 2 feet. This lens provides excellent contrast and color reproduction with no breathing. Available in PL and PV mounts.
These vintage lenses provide dramatic high contrast with warm flesh tones and cool flares, with focal lengths from 20mm to 150mm, apertures ranging from T2.3 to T3, and close focus distances ranging from 18 inches to 6 feet.
These lenses – lower in contrast than the Baltars – deliver cooler flesh tones and warm flares. The Kowas’ focal lengths range from 25mm to 75mm and close focus distances from 1 foot to 3 feet, all with an aperture of T2.3
